    @brucebartlett So would you expect to put in the material thickness and hole size for rivets? And you don't care about rivet gun/tool clearance on the stem side?

    I would expect to chose the unformed rivet length, and rivet diameter. We could choose a material thickness and have the rivet form to this but I think that would create more complication with multiple configs for the same part number.

    The rivet gun tool clearance would be the same as choosing a spanner clearance for a nut, except in the rivets case you have a waste material (stem).

    As you guys know, you could for now have a standard parts document with mate connectors on the parts/subassemblies.

    Yep, running at version 34 and counting. Every update makes all documents claiming that they have the old version, that hurts my feelings  :'(

    Can we get some more options for longer length bolts in the standard content?
    I keep running into the issue where I can't find a long enough ISO or DIN Socket Head Cap Screw in the standard content.

    For example, just now, I needed a M3 x 35mm bolt, but the standard content stops at 30mm length. McMaster shows that M3 bolts conforming to those standards are available all the way up to 70mm in length. See the screenshots below. I've run into this for other diameters as well.

    This is one of the reasons that I still end up using my own library of fasteners right now.

    If it is available I haven't found it, but it seems all of the ANSI hex nuts other than flanged start at 1/4-20.  I most often need sizes 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.

    Yep, bearings.  I use them all the time.

    Happy Monday!

    We just added two metric spring lock washers. 
         - Spring lock washer DIN 127 Type A
         - Spring lock washer DIN 127 Type B

    Please notes these are from a withdrawn standard.

    So do we have Metric Nylon lock nuts yet? ISO 7040 I believe. 

    It's a long thread and I've not read it all. If we do have metric nylocs, where do I find them?

    Thanks

    For ISO 7040 we only have Prevailing torque nut ISO 7040

    I've never been able to find Metric Nyloc nuts to my liking. The ISO ones are too skinny (thin). Prevailing also doesn't mean anything to me, is it a cone lock or combination of cone lock and nylon lock nuts. I think the more commonly used nylon lock nut here in Australia is to DIN standard but never been able to find it in the Onshape standard content.  It would be nice to search via commonly used trade description rather than standards.

    I'd like to request spacers/standoffs in standard sizes and lengths - should be a pretty simple add but gets closer to eliminating the need for a personal hardware library

    Nice to have the O-rings in the standard content since OS 1.102.
    At this moment the components are static. It would be nice as they become flexible so that they fit correctly in an O-ring groove (where the radial and/or axial space is normally smaller then the O-ring cord dia).
